I don’t know how you feel about President Trump, although I can guess if you eventually read this you do not think well of him. I certainly don’t, but I have now realized after a couple and a half years of trying to spit at him and slap him around that it was wasted spit […]Read More On Trump: Why It’s Time to Turn It Down
Well, I think this step was inevitable. One of the things about Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House and second in line in presidential succession, is the fact that she is a terrible public speaker.
